This was such a fun conversation and I know you are going to enjoy it.

Thoughts from Jana:

  • I really think having corporate experiences really serves me today. 

  • When you are relaxed, that is when you are working at your peak.

  •  When I do my workshops, it really brings me joy. 

  • It gave me the confidence to make the jump because it what it looked like on paper. 

  • I feel like I can’t be creative as I was in the past, because I can’t take those risks like I did back then.

  • Embellishment is a creative form of self-expression.  

  • People want something unique.  They want something handmade. 

  • Everyone has their own personal story about trim.

  • You should know what is going on in the market.
